Additional study areas in the Library
This post has focused on extra and bookable study spaces for quiet or group study. The Library has over 1,200 study spaces, spread across 5 floors. Most of the Library is designated quiet study, with silent study on Level 1 and Level 5. Level 2 is our services floor, providing a less formal space with seating for socialising. There is also a designated postgraduate workroom on Level 5, plus we have an Assistive Technologies room on Level 3 for students with a disability who have registered with the Disability Service.
